Real Warns Spurs Over Bale Deal

MOST COMMENTED

Real Madrid has warned Tottenham Hotspur that the Spanish giant would be just fine without Gareth Bale, after accusing Spurs chairman Daniel Levy of dragging his feet over the proposed world record transfer of a player who clearly does not want to play for Spurs again.

In a recent interview, Real vice president Fernando Fernandez-Tapias said: "[Bale] is not here, because there are problems there. We thought Bale was going to be with us by now but for the time being he is still not in Madrid. I don't doubt the value of the player but Real Madrid without Bale is still a strong Madrid. We have a great team." While he believes the deal will still go through, Fernandez-Tapias added, “I could not swear to it entirely.”

Meanwhile, Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas confirmed that the proposed transfer, which has gone on for months, had hit a snag. “There is no new news,” the Portuguese told reporters after Tottenham’s 8-0 Europa League playoff series win against Dinamo Tbilisi last night. “This might drag on for a couple more days. I have no control of the situation to provide a definitive answer.”
